U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is taking questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee today. If confirmed, the federal appeals court judge would fill a seat left vacant for more than a year, following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016.

Wednesday is Day 3 of the proceedings, which could continue through Thursday. Monday consisted of opening statements — with Republicans praising Gorsuch and Democrats arguing that former President Barack Obama’s nominee, to whom the GOP would not give a hearing in an election year, should have been in the hot seat instead.
